Surrogate?

Sorry I haven't posted in a while; I decided to take a few weeks off of anything academic. I've been reading a fantastic graphic novel the last weeks or so, though, and turns out it's being made into a movie.

The comic is Robert Venditti's The Surrogates (the wiki).



Not quite done with it yet, but it's really fantastic so far. You can find
a quick video review by the Pulp Secret guys here (as a side note, that middle guy really doesn't know what he's talking about: the book is not dystopian in any way, it doesn't resemble Vonnegut's Player Piano at all, and what he really means is Philip K. Dick-esque because Dick could easily have written this).

Here's the trailer for the film:



Looks really good, though there are already some places I can see that they've changed some basic plot points in some interesting ways.
